William Ludwig Lutgens
Lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium.
In his artistic practice, Lutgens works on multiple works at the same time, so that they can grow together creating a cohesive universe leaving the spectator somewhere in a juxtaposition, between the playful and the serious, amusement and discomfort.
William Ludwig’s work is a reflection of autobiographical elements combined with social realities, fixations and fantasies as well as human behaviors, urges and lusts.
In translating these snippets, Lutgens always tries to form his ideas starting form a drawing, which then quickly derives in another form, such as sculpture, sounds, text and images. William Ludwig Lutgens is versatile as it often emerges as a condensation of the streams of information that flow through his mind and it gradually evolves into a narrative. Trying to create these anecdotes in his signature illustrative style, leaves the viewer often with cultural associations or political issues.
